This course was offered for the last time in the summer semester 2019. It has been replaced by the course [MAT-64-16-K-7] "High-Dimensional Integration: Function Spaces, Algorithms, and Complexity".


Algorithms and Complexity of high and infinite-dimensional integration problems:
  • Monte Carlo Method,
  • discrepancy of point sequences and quasi Monte Carlo Method,
  • randomisation,
  • lower error bound and complexity of continuous problems,
  • curse of dimension,
  • quadrature problems for stochastic differential equations.


  • E. Novak, H. Wozniakowski: Tractability of Multivariate Problems, Vol. I-III.


Further literature will be announced in the lecture.

Requirements for attendance (informal)

Knowledge on stochastic differential equations is useful, but not necessarily required.
